The first season of Sacred Games was appreciated and loved by everyone and it ended at a very suspenseful note. There were some speculations doing round that the second season of this popular and hit crime-drama saga will not come out. A source close to the show said, “Sacred Games was made on a huge budget, but its viewership has been limited. As a result, it has not been able to bring in the numbers it was expected to.”
This rumour broke many hearts because even if according to sources the show couldn’t make big numbers, it created a huge fan base. But the good news is that Netflix confirmed today that the second season will be coming soon. The makers revealed that the second season will showcase Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) saving the city and we will see the struggle of Ganesh Gaitonde in retaining his position as the don of Mumbai.
The first season was about Ganesh Gaitonde’s journey when he started and we met his two fathers and got a brief introduction of his third father. In the second season, we will get to know his third father (teesra baap – Pankaj Tripathi) more and he will be playing a very important role in the second season.
In the second season, Anurag Kashyap will continue taking over the role of Ganesh Gaitonde, Neeraj Ghaywan will take over the role of Sartaj Singh, Varun Grover will continue being the lead writer and Vikramaditya Motwane will be in his role of the showrunner of the show.
Right now the shoot for the second season got postponed because the actors are busy with their other movies. The shoot will start from November, Nawaz’s representative told a leading daily that he is busy with his other movie and so he couldn’t give a date for the shoot of the second season. “The shoot couldn’t begin this month because Nawaz and Saif are busy with their respective projects. Nawaz starts Motichoor Chaknachoor in a few days and has a film with Rajinikanth lined up next. On the other hand, Saif still has 15 days of work left on Navdeep Singh’s Hunter. He begins shooting for another movie soon after. They will be able to fit in dates for Sacred Games 2 only after mid-November.”
